1  Re: Myspace. Anti. in Stenciling: Completed Projects by backspace on: January 03, 2006 09:17:21 PM
I saw the same image and wanted it on a shirt. But then I realized my school might not like the slut part, so I came up with something less vulgar but just as fitting.

I just finished it the other day, so I don't have any reactions yet.

I am one of two students in my journalism class who do not have a Myspace. At one point, someone went so far as to make a fake Myspace for me. It really is a disease, no, an epidemic.

2  My hands aren't cold anymore. (Furry Fingerless Gloves) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by backspace on: November 06, 2005 03:36:12 PM
I live in California, to me anything below 60 degrees is cold. I love wearing gloves to keep my hands warm at school, but it's hard to write or do anything else while wearing gloves. I decided I needed some fingerless gloves. The other day I found over a yard of blue faux fur at the thrift store for $3, perfect.


I can still put my hands in my pockets, one of my hobbies.

Proof that there are two of them.

My sister laughed but then admitted that she wants a pair. I'll debut them at school tomorrow and see what type of reaction they receive. I doubt people will be very surprised as the gloves match my hair, and my shoes.

Each glove is essentially just a rectangle of fabric twice the width of the widest part of my hand, folded in half and sewn up leaving a slit for the thumb, then hemmed at the top and bottom. I didn't make them too form-fitted because the fabric isn't stretchy so they would end up not fitting over my hand. They shed a bit as I didn't finish off the edges very well, but that just adds to the charm. I'd like to make a pair lined in this green satin that I have, but in my experience satin and fur are some of the most difficult fabrics to work with.

Auf wiedersehen!

Due to technical difficulties, jennye can't post pictures, but here are the cases I made for the swap.
RaeAmazon recieved the blue and jennye got the pink polka-dots.

I love both of the cd's I got. This was a great swap idea!

I got the same cd as RaeAmazon from jennye. I love the little story she wrote with the titles!
Here's another picture of the cover. Pretty gold paper and a martini print background.


And here are the cute little doodles on the cd itself.

My sentiments exactly.

I think I saw some Moldy Peaches on someone's track list, yay!

I should be sending mine out tomorrow.

6  Re: tie purse hippie style in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by backspace on: December 29, 2004 03:24:12 AM
I really love all of those purses. I made one from your tutorial awhile back and was forced by friends and family to make more, one for the sister, aunt, best friend, and more on the way. My cousin loved it too, but seeing as she lives in L.A. she wanted one she could keep safely under her arm as a handbag. I played with the idea for awhile and decided that using the wide ends just wouldn't work right and trying to find enough skinny ties would take too much work. Then it hit me, why not use all those skinny ends I had kept for no obvious reason? It's assembled in pretty much the same way, but with only one tie for each half of the strap.

Side one:

Side two:

It seems like the skinny ends like to curve as you sew them together, so I ended up (after some freaking out) with an assymetrical type thing along the opening. My brother decided that it looks more "LA" like that.
I wanted to put snaps on as a closure, but I had none and it was about 10:30 on Christmas Eve.

In closing, thank you, Smurfette, for providing me with something to give to those hard-to-craft-for people.

I'm working out a way to make a zippered make-up pouch by putting the skinny ends together horizontally with the pointy end of one next to the hemmed of the next and so on. I'll post a pic here if I ever get around to it, and if I ever get a zipper.

7  Misc. T-Shirts (tree, Alex Kapranos, Solemite) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by backspace on: December 29, 2004 03:04:53 AM
I have finally gotten around to posting these. I use wax paper and fabric paint for my stencils. All of these are designed by me, if for any reason you'd like them I can post/send you the jpg.

This one says baum, it's German for tree. My Germ 2 teacher liked it, a lot.

My friend is completely in love with Alex Kapranos, of Franz Ferdinand fame, so I made her a shirt for her birthday. The colors are off though, it's really periwinkle with white paint.

And finally, one of the first stencils I ever did. This one was done the day of the last show ever played by Solemite, so it's not real detailed. They were a really great band from a nearby city, Oakland. The "S" is their logo, kind of, and those are some of their lyrics that fit the situation perfectly. My sister made one along the same lines, different words and stuff though, the band loved them both.

Back, just the band name, it was centered between the shoulders.
